National Assembly Stops Bill Compelling Political Office Holders To Vacate Seat After Defection To Another Party

The National Assembly has rejected a bill which will compel any elected political office holder to vacate his seat for defecting to another political party.

The bill to “alter the Provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 to Provide for the Termination of Tenure of Certain Elected Officials on Account of of Political Party; and for Related Matters” failed to pass after both chambers voted against it while amending the constitution.

The rejected bill would have prohibited the embarrassing gale of defections across the country.
